Welcome to the Carnival of Creative Growth #19. We have another interesting and varied collection of offerings for your enjoyment in this edition.
I do appreciate those bloggers who link back and Stumble, Digg, and otherwise promote the carnival. I keep that in mind as I sort through the mounds of submissions.
One other note, I have been seeing more blogs that after I start to read the post, a drop down or slide over box lands in the middle of my vision, demanding my attention for subscribing to the blog or whatever.
This would be as if someone walked into my gallery, started looking at a painting, and I walked over and shoved a clipboard in front of their face, demanding they sign up on my mailing list.
If I ever did that, they would immediately walk out. So do I, when a blog treats me that way. You won’t find any of them on here. So enjoy!
